On a Quest to Eat at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Before I Turn 50

There is a scene in the movie, Ratatouille, when Anton Ego, the inimitable food critic, takes a bite of the titular dish. He is instantly transported to his childhood. There is something about being in that moment. The rest of the world disappears. I can no longer hear. I can no longer see. All I can do is taste. And it is pure pleasure.

This is the moment I seek.

This journey will take me around the world, to visit 50 of the World’s Best Restaurants. I am no food critic. I have no sway. I’m just a guy who enjoys good food and enjoys to travel. This web site is a history of that journey.
